For enthusiasts of early banjo
5 string floral marquetry, fretted, eagle bracket banjo
This is a banjo I've been working on for the past month or so. Dave Kirchner made the frets.
I just found about more about the banjo I just restored. There is an almost identical one on the Bernunzio site with identical marquetry and an identical neck and headstock. The Bernunzio instrument however has a Teed tension mechanism and a resonator. Both are unmarked. My guess is they were both made in the same factory (probably Buckbee) and that mine was made out of left over or spare parts. It's a mutt, but what a beautiful mutt.
What a beaut!
